put that on the front page. make it an issue in our city, we could become number one on the planet for top, safety, on the roads, when the police enforce the laws. but they are not, only against automobiles. that is wrong. and that is all that i have to say. as a native, who grew up three blocks from here. thank you. [ applause ] . >> thank you. >> further public comment? >> my name is lisa ganser and i moved to san francisco like a year and a half ago. and when i first moved here, i noticed like living in the mission, that there was a like a political climate, that of gentrification and i looked for a way as an artist and activist to get involved in the
community and a way to be proud of my neighborhood and a way to yeah, participate, and meet the people and make friends and i just moved here and i grew up to vernal heights quite a bit with dogs, and i walked dogs and i walk myed own dog and i heard about alex's death, and his murder, on facebook, someone had posted about it and, i had just recently been atop vernal, eating food and hanging out and i am professionally paid to be crazy. so, that is part of my activism too. it really angered me and it impassioned me to get involved in the neighborhood and so i am here in solidary with the family. and being here, and meeting people... [ applause ] and meeting people through the activism and i found out other other cases like sullivan who
was killed on june 6, 2006 and barricaded in an attic and i am helping to write an article about that right now and i have been sitting in on the civil suit, there has been a court proceeding in oakland that just ended. and they found that in favor of the police. so, we are going to be any way, i am writing an article about that, and sitting through that, court proceeding just showed me more and more how everything, is in favor of the police. and like, the police are going to afford to pay, $50,000 to an pert to create this huge, like farce of what has really happened and i am a little nervous, but it is just disgusting to me how i am sitting here and i am hearing like, we live in the neighborhood and i went to school over there when i was a kid too, and i want to hear the negative side of the police. that killed the people. because we don't hear any of that. we hear about how crazy, the victims are, and the people who
get killed and we don't hear anything about the police. all of those records are sealed. any way. [ applause ] >> hi, everybody, my name is maria (inaudible) and i am a mother, first and foremost and i am a early childhood advocate here in the bay area, and i am actually having a career change because of everything that is happening like i said i have been in the early childhood field and i believe in the education, first and foremost, but since everything is happening i am actually going back to school to do social work, to be a social worker. [ applause ] >> and so, i didn't have the honor of knowing, alex, and the whole, story, has deeply affected me. i have a childhood friend, some of you may have known or heard of (inaudible) chang, who was killed by the police department, and the daily city
swat team and why the swat team needed to show up is beyond my comprehension. he had a mental illness, and the bottom line of this story is that he basically was terrorized and kids and he was scared for his life and schizophrenic and then in half moon bay, the same thing happens, not much longer after it happened in (inaudible) and i have a 10-year-old son. and i cannot explain to all of you how it felt to have my son ask me why the police came and killed my friend, when the mother called for help. and to have to look at a little boy in the eyes a little innocent child and explain these sorts of things, i don't wish upon nao*eg anybody nor do i wish upon any mother or father to have to feel the pain of losing a child. to call for help, you know, and then to have your child be taken from you.
i don't get it. and i just want to send my respect to alex (inaudible) family and friends and everybody here who has been affected by this. as alex was, i am a buddhist as well and i have a really hard time understanding how he could have been a threat to anybody. i have only been practicing a year and i am at the most peaceful state that i have ever been in my life. and so, any way i look forward to helping change everything for the better, thank you. >> thank you. [ applause ] >> any further public comment? >> hearing none, public comment is closed. and now, it is time for my colleagues to ask questions, of captain mcfadden and follow up on any items of interest. colleagues? >> or the chief. >> yeah. >> questions? >> thank you.
>> commissioner dejesus? look at me. forgetting. >> it is for the chief and i know that i was gone for a couple of weeks but we have talked about putting cameras on officers, and there is i am just wondering if you can address that. >> we have secured 250,000 dollars to put cameras on 50 supervisors that we will and we are working on the policy and procedure, and meet and confer with the poa, and the, the main thrust of these particular cameras, would be to video tape the entries into the residentses, so that we make sure that we capture the information at the door. and much has been asked about having cameras, on all police officers. and the 50 cameras that the cost is about $100,000. and annually to store the data, for 50 camera and so the cost
will be $2.4 million annually to put the cameras on all police officers, ongoing. and so, as it is right now, the cost is prohibitive... (inaudible) >> hey, wait... (inaudible) nmr. miller we are going to respect everybody, we had a process and you had your two minutes. >> and again i am happy to have the conversation, but it would be, the current moneys in the san francisco police department budget are allocated and it would be an additional $2.4 million to put those cameras, like everything else in technology, though, the expectation is that the cost for the data storage would go down, because right now the department of justice does not allow to us store in the cloud which would be cheaper. and so as the department of justice, the united states department of justice, catches up, and i think that the cost of the data storage will go down and i firmly believe and i would be, and i would, welcome the day when i think that the
cameras are standard issue and i do think that day will come, but right now, sadly, the budget drives that issue. >> so it is ongoing. >> and it is ongoing issue that we are... >> right. the 50 cameras is the pilot program and obviously the want is from many people not only in this room but outside of the room that they, and that all police officers wear the cameras. >> thank you so much. >> and captain, mcfadden, it is impressive that you have 65 crt officers and i think maybe you can just tell the audience a little bit more about the cit and how important that it is, especially for the people who have mental illness or having a crisis. >> thanks, so, a crisis intervention officers are trained to deal with people with mental el, health issues and the chief is saying that as many officers get trained and distributed throughout the different stations throughout the city and that is dealing
with the mental health issues that we have across the city, which we have numerous calls and that is what the cit officers are all about and so we have, more than a majority here, adding to the 6500. >> and i think that one of the important things about this program was the training by all of these professionals, additional training and it is volunteer by these officers and it takes many numerous hours to get that training. >> right and, most of my officers there at ingleside did it long before i got there and now several others because there has been a rotation of officers have come in that are or have asked for the request for that training and i have signed it through for them to have it done. >> and the fact that two years ago, we had nil and we have 65, and in your precinct i think that is mazing >> thank you. >> commissioner? >> other questions? >> colleagues? >> i have one question for the chief. there has been a lot of
discussion about the community policing departmental general order, and one of the things that we do as a commission is that we set policy and we discipline and so any discipline comes to the police commission and so we do approve the departmental orders and that went through this body and the significance of a department general order is that it is a direct order from the chief, and so i just wanted to ask the chief about, if you could speak to what it is the departmental order is if i said that correctly and any response to our incorporate ration for the policing to the department. >> general orders are not actually direct orders from the chief and they are binding by the police commission and so we have and they are para military organization and not military, and para in that we go by rank and order, and so the general order, are one of the main, or the main document that
governors police officers and how we do things. so, we did work with nina and many of the other members of the community to arrive at the community policing general, and i think that when nina originally said that it was to enhance the community, and in general order, there was no community policing in general order, that is the first and only time ever there has been a community policing general order. and so, it is binding, on the officers, and i am happy to come and personally, and come to talk to the young people, about how the general orders go in. and but the officers are trained to it, and they are bound by it, and actually it is a matter that if somebody believes that somebody was acting outside the general order, and any general order, that is a matter that can be complained to the occ if you believe that the officers are not being consistent with any policy of the police department. >> thank you, chief.
>> if i could just chime in, there is a lot of talk about maybe the chief coming out to talk to the students here at balboa, and that is not something new, i can tell you that the chief was at lincoln high school and meeting with students as part of a regular program that he does have keeping the students in school. and explaining the benefit of a high school education and that is just one of the starting points of community policing. that he is visible and he is in the schools and talking to the students and i would not be surprised if he has been here and it is not something new, it is something that happened earlier today. >> thank you, commissioner. >> and the last thing that i want to acknowledge is the point that was brought up about the closed session, items not being on the calendar. and say that is my call, there was administrative issues around being able to do a closed session here, and making sure that we had a quorum. so we are going to hear those matters on november 5th, they are closed session matters because there are statutory privacy rights involved in
litigation to the extent that you want to come, november 5th. >> and thank you for raising those concerns. >> thank you. >> sergeant, could you call the next line item? >> line item 8, adjournment. >> action. >> move to adjourn. >> colleagues. i would ask for a motion to adjourn this meeting in the memory of the four victims who have died of domestic violence homicide this year. i am going to say their names. mary free man, matthew shehan, mary atcison and cecil. a lamb. could i have a motion. >> i would move. >> second. >> second. >> all of those in favor. >> aye. >> the motion passes, we are adjourned.
